In response to Joyce Carol Oates Essay on JE, written by Cassia on October 08, 1997 at 18:17:08
that oates review was great, cassia - thanks. the proto-feminist theme she uses is apparently a very popular way to view the book. i can see why, and think i could do a decent freshman paper on that if i put my pen to it. so much great material there - one could review the novel from so many viewpoints. a related theme could be, "critical review of jane eyre by bronte's male contemporaries". i'd like to be able to establish bronte's motivation for her seemingly radical statements; i.e., can one argue that if these sentiments arose spontaneously from the story, do they actually become more convincing than if she'd simply used the opportunity to make a more "political" statement?
